Just about finished up with moving my battery to the back,installed a push/pull rod and am going to have my sticker guy make up a sticker for push off. Didn't know if anyone here had any clever ideas or stickers on there cars that are funny,unique,ect.

Not to high jack the op question, but does the switch need to be" push off" as per rules or can" pull off" work as well as long as there is a decal saying so

I'm pretty sure that NHRA specified the "push off" design simply because they did not like the "jerk off" lettering on 3/4 of the cars at the track. As if you could legislate maturity in the drag racing community :)

Having the pull knob sticking way out while the vehicle is running is stupid looking and a small time walk around safety hazard. I have a simply lettered pull off handle and have never been given any kind of a hard time about it by tech.

I believe that may be so that if you back it into the wall, it turns itself off. Or at least that is what I was always told. Push OFF........Toni

There is a reason for the push off pull on...it is two fold, one- it is universal so it is an automatic reaction for the safety crews. Two- in the event the car was to back into the wall or impact the rear it would automatically push in and shut the power down. So in essesence for it to function the way it was intended it needs to stickout past the chute mounts at the least.

Plus if it's on fire, it's much easier to kick it off, then reach in there to pull off through flames.

Guy here in MS has his switch mounted in the middle of his tag which is personalized and reads "off on". Pretty cool
